COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The Jackhammer is a very dark brown ale with a nice reddish hue. Offering a welcome warming sensation, it has a rich malty sweetness. Fruity esters, expected in this style beer, add to the already complex palate and help to provide an immensely satisfying experience!

sweet caramelly/hoppy aroma, dark red with no head, medicinal hoppiness, very earthy and mossy with lingering sticky bitterness

Fairly deep copper color. Definitely some sweet notes. I had with a plain old cheeseburger, it matched pretty well, however, I was pretty drunk when I drank this. Nothing entirely remarkable about this beer, but it’s something I would contemplate buying again.

The only ABC beer I've had with suspended yeast and some sedimentary heftiness. Ultimately a bit too sweet for style, I think, in all aromatic and flavor aspects. Should be more deeply musty, leathery and with a bit thinner palate, and smokier. Quite fruity - the menu description say "chocolate covered cherries" and indeed they've accomplished some of that - English strong-ish, but not complex or sharp.

Wow. This is a hell of a beer, beautiful in the glass and kaleidoscopic in flavour as it allows you to experience a rich and spicy shock of alcohol, a rise of berry-and-chocolate in the malt, and a scant dry breath of hops at close. Only the alt is better in the ABC portfolio.
